Edmonton reaches tentative deal to purchase MacEwan Jasper Place campus

December 4, 2012

Edmonton city council has tentatively approved a $36-million deal to purchase MacEwan University's Jasper Place campus for a community arts centre. MacEwan president David Atkinson says money from the sale will help fund the institution's planned 4-storey, $120-million Centre for Arts and Culture in downtown Edmonton. The tentative agreement would see the 800 to 1,000 Jasper Place students move out and the municipality take possession when the new structure is completed in late 2015. Edmonton Journal
